Resumen:
"In 1792, Charles Williamson arrived here from Scotland to manage the former Phelps and Gorham Purchase lands. As the land agent for Sir William Pulteney, Williamson cleared the wilderness, built roads, established communities, a postal system, a newspaper, in a period of ten years. The infrastructure he put into place is still evident. Part of his compensation was the "southern half of Bluff Point" where he built White Hart Farm, the first house at the tip of the Bluff. Annette Toaspern has done a phenomenal job of researching the activities of Charles Williamson, documenting them with photos of original ledgers, drawings, maps, etc. Her talk is fascinating with lots of facts and resources."--Cover
